Estimated 2012 Enrollment Figures Released at All Campus Day

The Penn State Lehigh Valley Office of Institutional Planning released an Enrollment Snapshot for the incoming class of freshmen and advanced standing students for Fall 2012. The Snapshot provides total enrollment numbers and break-downs by gender, minority, age, and GPA/SAT scores. Additional charts showcase the states of residency (for out-of-state students), counties of residency (for in-state students), and the top 12 high schools from which incoming freshmen graduated. Comparisons to enrollment figures in 2009 and 2002 are also included.
